About This Book

Pagan is the largest and most resplendent centre of Buddhist art in the ancient world. Nearly 3000 brick monuments - temples, stupas and monasteries - dot the landscape up and down the banks of the Irrawaddy as far as the eye can see. Construction at Pagan peaked between the 11th and 13th centuries when the city was home to the country's kings and its chief religious personalities. The author presents 33 of these monuments, each with a unique story to tell about Pagan. He delves into the history and architecture of each monument and the treasure-trove of Buddhist art that lays within its walls, and in doing so he paints a larger picture of the development of Pagan's monuments, painting and sculpture. This lushly illustrated volume also includes suggested hotels and activities for visitors, a glossary and an index.
